It is hard to overstate the brilliance of this early John Carpenter effort, and the influence it had on the modern slasher film. It isn’t the first film of its kind nor the best, but it is masterfully made (on a small budget with a small crew and tight schedule) and deserves a viewing even […]

The Car is one of the more flagrant Jaws ripoffs (and everyone involved knew and owned this, at the time), although of course it takes place entirely in a land-locked, somewhere-out-West small town near a canyon. It might seem silly to think on all the ersatz Jaws movies we’ve been subjected to, but then again Spielberg’s 1975 […]

  Scottish siblings Angela and Jackson (Florence Pugh and Ben Lloyd-Hughes) helm a sophisticated ghost investigation scam operation to keep themselves afloat. Angela is a university student in Psychology half-assing her way through her studies, preferring to get high and occasionally see to her aging, alcoholic grandfather (James Cosmo). In the family tradition Jackson too uses […]

At midnight of the centennial of sleepy coastal town Antonio Bay, a small but threatening series of paranormal disturbances trickle through the spring evening. A slow-moving, supernaturally-glowing fog rolls inland, and three men on a trawler are accosted by silent spirits. Meanwhile at the radio…

Hard on the heels of the successful and comedic game-changer Anchorman, Adam McCay and Will Ferrell once again team up for another half-slapstick, half-surreal niche comedy. Rather than a knuckle-dragging send-up of NASCAR and the American South, Nights instead serves…

The Stepfather is a 1987 horror film that spawned two fairly campy sequels and one remake; it was Stepfather II that first introduced me to the franchise. At the time, covertly watching late-night cable at a friend’s house, I was just…

Having just watched The Meg at the drive-in last week, I was discussing he film with a friend last night. In explaining the movie to a third party listening in, my friend simply said, “It is what it is.” I…

On a test run of the world’s first nuclear submarine (USA! USA! USA!), Commander Pete Mathews (Kenneth Tobey) and his jovial Merry Men crew run across a spooky, large sighting via their sonar equipment. The mass overtakes and strikes the…

Southbound (2015) So, horror anthologies. Let’s face it: they’re corny. While I understand their appeal, I’m usually not compelled by the typical fare they consist of: sci-fi “gotcha” vignettes, spoooooky morality twists – or simply, relentless cruelty. This film uses…

Synopsis: five orphans room together while attending Central Florida College; nights they moonlight as the rock band Dragon Sound, and wage battle with drug-dealing motorcycle ninjas operating out of Orlando. Yeah. Yeah, you heard right. Miami Connection is one of…

According to its Wikipedia entry, 1981 Italian film Great White (alternate title: The Last Shark) had only a short theatrical release in the US before it was pulled “after accusations of plagiarism of Jaws“. You don’t say? The film doesn’t only rip-off Jaws – and…

Until I watched The Shallows I guess deep down I didn’t think we had another good shark film in the tank (yuk yuk). I mean we really lucked out with Jaws: a horror-drama rather than true eco-horror, well-paced with perfect humor…
